Short description:
ICSPP is concerned with the impact of mental health theories on public policy and the effects of therapeutic practices upon individual well-being, personal freedom, and family and community values. For over 25 years ICSPP has been informing the professions, the media and the public about the potential dangers of drugs, electroshock, psychosurgery, and the biological theories of psychiatry. In many cases, we have been the lone organization opposing the march of the latest hazardous psychiatric invention and alerting the media and the public to the dangers of treating social, interpersonal and personal problems as though they were medical diseases.
